2014 All-USA Community College Academic Team Honors outstanding students. 

Students of all ages and backgrounds — who have overcome a range of challenges to pursue their dreams — are thriving in the USA's community colleges. The Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society will honor them by announcing its 2014 All-USA Community College Academic Team today, recognizing 20 two-year college students from across the USA who display an outstanding combination of academic achievement and community service.

Sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group, with support from the American Association of Community Colleges, each winner receives a $2,500 scholarship. To be eligible, the student must have been nominated by his or her college.

The winners were selected from more than 1,700 students nominated by more than 800 community colleges.
